this is the only thing ive ever seen for the GSXR

# GS - Gran Sport, used to indicate a road going Suzuki standard motorcycle, the only model that still uses this designation in the Suzuki line up is the GS500.
# XR - eXperimental Racing. Designation added to GS for Suzukis road legal race replica motorcycles thereby creating GSXR.

just by googling so I don't know if these are close:

GSX-R: Gran Sport eXpermintal Racing

YZF-R: Yamaha Racing Four Stroke

CBR: SSB Mag says "Cross Beam Racer" but Honda apparently say: City Bike Racing(model)

ZX: can't find anything except dudewheresmybike talking about the same thing on zx-10r.net, lol.
